which has been around for about 10 years saying that -- getting johnson & jn -- johnson saying we're going to get carcinogens first out of our baby products across the whole world and that's really significant because they found formaldehyde in baby's johnson shampoo a few years ago, they tested it a few yearser later and found that johnson & johnson has taken it out of their products in china and other countries but not in the united states, well, if you can do it in one country, why can't you do it in all of them, doesn't everybody deserve safer baby shampoo no matter where they live? that put a lot of pressure on them because the consumers said we don't want those things in our products and the change happened and now they have a plan with timelines and clear transparent goals to get those chemicals out of their products. it might be a little slower than we'd all like as consumers but it's moving in the right direction and getting one major company to move put a lot of pressure on those other companies if they want to maintain their credibility, so we're seeing safer shampoo pr

will remember -- that magnificent speech, healing speech -- his vice president was ander johnsorew johnson. affusion ticket in 1864 -- a fusion ticket in 1864. johnson arrived with the flu. he gave, for what it was all accounts, a completely inebriated address. lincoln was mortified. it said the public image -- set the public image of andrew johnson. another disastrous vice- presidential inaugural address was calvin coolidge's. he used that opportunity to state and how the filibuster should be done away with. president roosevelt's second inauguration, that is when the congress started before the president. now presidents and vice presidents began to be sworn outside of the steps. there was one exception in the long tradition of inauguration's being held in the capital. that was in 1945, when franklin roosevelt was being sworn in for a fourth time. he was the only president of united states to serve more than two terms. his third inauguration was of the capital. his fourth one was in the middle of world war ii. he felt this is not the opportune time to have endean elaborate inauguration. it

. franklin roosevelt was moved by later movements. lyndon johnson had the civil rights movement. i think we begin with that. this book comes out at a moment when the country sees the power and possibility of occupy, 99%, and how that has shifted. it is still evolving. it has shifted the center of political gravity of our dialogue. the issue has been off the radar for so long. >> roosevelt surfed and harnessed those movements. he used them to get legislation passed to initiate programs. obama is still getting on his wet suit. to read the essay she wrote in 2008, there was a sense of exhibits -- exuberance. you say that hope is not optimism that expects things to turn out well. it seems like he confused those two things. >> i will come back to what i write about in the book. the expectations were so great and high. go back to 2008. the back to the election and year when we are fortunate region were fortunate enough to be living with debates that were not cruel reality shows. every week, there were debates among the democratic candidates. barack obama embodied change. it seemed he brought into
championship game as police announce he is under investigation. good evening, everyone. i'm carolyn johnson. >> i'm dan ashley. tonight san francisco police are investigating an allegation of sexual assault involving crabtree. police say the incident happened last sunday morning in a san francisco hotel. he has not been detained or arrested. crabtree is said to be cooperating with police. he joined the team on the trip to atlanta for sunday's nfc championship game, and that's where abc7 news sports reporter mike shumann is live tonight. shu, what bad timing for this bombshell. >> well, dan, there is never good timing for a situation like this. the 49ers arrived 11:15 eastern standard time at the ritz carlton in downtown atlanta. crabtree was on the first bus. he was in the second row. he stood up and then sat back down as about 10 or 15 other players and 49er personnel got off the bus almost trying to distract us. they were trying to make it tough for us to shoot anybody getting off the bus. and then michael walked off the bus. you can see he was escorted by a personnel security man in the
. >> surely finding osama bin laden, surely passing civil rights legislation as lyndon johnson was able to do and before that, surely defeating the nazis was a much more formidable task than taking on the gun lobby. >> so if we can defeat the germans in world war ii, i guess the n.r.a. is supposed to be-- is that what he's saying? >> right, he's giving himself a little bit of wiggle room. i didn't exactly compare the nra to the nazis, stew $them in the same spot and let the audience sort it out. we're sure to see, on gun owners opponents of gun control and language when you see words likenazis. george orwell in 1946 a famous essay, the word fascism should only be used for people with hitler and-- that was 1946, 70 years later we're still doing it. >> jon: do you see it differently, judy? >> not really, i thought that schieffer was very close to the line of advocacy as opposed to reading the news and being straight about a news story. i do think that even though there was no direct comparison there's clearly an inference that the n.r.a. is equivalent to the nazis and raises questions whether o
sidetracked. >> that is true. i would say this as far as what senator obama said in 2006, quoting mr. johnson. consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds. there was a different attitude, and we have raise the debt ceiling 70-plus times, the congress has voted to do it, and there has always been that sense of we are not going to vote to raise the other guys debt ceiling, but there was always the understanding that we would provide the votes in the final analysis. the president's party did that. right now you have a situation where the republican party is reduced to its lowest standing in the history of the wall street journal nbc pulled to 23% favorable, 47% unfavorable. the only thing that is worse is john boehner. 18% favorable. this is not a formidable partner. >> over the weekend, politico reported that a lot of house republicans threaten to shut down the government. they need to make shut down in or to get out of the system. we may need to do that for member-management purposes so that they can have an end game and show their constituents they are fighting to get it out of the system? th
it done at the foul line. they're having some issues with elijah johnson at the point. he was 1 for 11. teams are slowing them down. they've been in the 60s for three straight games. so a win is a win. but they have to play at kansas state tuesday that will be tough. >> mcelmore had 16 in the game. other action that we need to update you on. arizona with ease. 71-54 over the sun devils. the florida gators are really playing well for billy donovan. his team rolling missouri without bowers. 83-52. you mentioned ohio state. they're underway right now with michigan state. sparty up by 8 early on. the creighton-wichita state was something to behold. a classic matchup. dougy getting it down early on. this time inside the painted area. >> yeah. big play. how about williams with the nice finish. put the shockers up 2. talked about doug mcdermot. he showed up. williams here again with the finish and the foul. and they just could not do enough down the stretch. you can see her with the opportunity to get the three from ethan groggy. the shockers shock the blue jays. >> the iron unkind at the end
it on the stove. >> you see davis alumni chris johnson who graduated in 2002, and he has come up with the rapid raman cooker. look at this thing. it's perfectly shaped for, you know, the little square, hard block of noodles. you put it in there. fill it up to the line, pop it in the microwave four minutes and it's ready to go. >> when i was here at davis, i would always make it in the microwave, and sometimes it's good. and sometimes it's undercooked. i was like, why is that? what's the variance there? what i found is that, if there's excess water, the microwave cooks the water and doesn't cook the noodles. >> featured twice on kca news and now says his seams are through the roof. he's shipped this product to all 50 states. >> i'll tell you what's clutch about this. the brick noodles, that are the cheapest, you can get them for like 30 cents, bupt they do sell the microwave kind, those are like $1.50. this thing pays for itself like that. >> in you've got a brother, sister, cousin, whatever, going to college. pretty cheap. you can get one rapid raman cooker fore$9.99 at rapid raman dotcom. >> i
consequences for it. >> he has been compared to lyndon johnson i think lyndon johnson used profanity strategically and as a bully tactic. when you're in a position of rahm emmanuel and you swear at somebody you can swear at them but they can't swear at you. just the fact that you're using profanity. one of the cases where this came up, this was in jonathan aldridge's book "the promise" take your f-ing tampons out and tell me what you have to have to say. that came up when a former senator wanted to make his temperament an issue. she said, no tampons. let's talk about tampons. this is not about tampons but how women would feel about someone who does that in the workplace. so i would say that it lowered the tone of the mayoral debates. >> after--sorry, after that the mayor grabbed me by the arm. his bodyguards came in. the question is has it been an affective management strategy in chicago? can you talk about the union strike, how did it go? how did it go when the mayor behaved this way? >> i would say no, because one of the most famous stories he was meeting with karen lewis president
behind and handed it to president johnson and president johnson read it. he didn't show it to bob mcnamara and bob mcnamara called from the library and it has been declassified. he was screaming from the other room why didn't i see this memo? they concluded that it was the six so he didn't see it. and it would not have made a difference if he had seen it. >> the memo concluded the united states position in the world would not be affected if it lost the war. that was a very important point. there were other things in the memo that were not quite right. it was an interesting memo. was really written before they could know what was going on. we could take one more question. >> any advice for the new cia director? >> i do have. i always have an opinion. he should learn to be quiet. if you remember -- i hope you will send the frame back to the pentagon, if you remember, after the osama bin laden capture, he came out of the white house, you remember that? you were probably third. i hope you will be more circumspect. in every part of the agency, he knows it well but i am hoping. my perso
. we also hear from johnson & johnson, lots of action @jimcramer on twitter about this one, time to hop off the j & j bus because of the new. are you kidding? possibly bringing up value with a breakup, don't you dare sell. in fact, let's hope it comes down, i'd be a buyer, especially before the earnings. google reports after the close. well, this quarter crushed it. by the way, that's wall street gibberish for blow away the numbers. i think google's got enough levers to report a decent quarter. i want to hear about android monetization, search, and how the chrome pc is doing. because i hear it's doing pretty darn well. number one pc seller on amazon of late. on wednesday, frankly, i don't care about any other stock other than apple. comes after the close. but i also know when you're that apple focused you tend to miss something big away from it. suffice to say that this is, perhaps, yes, the single most important quarter apple ever had. comes on the heels of two so-so quarters and massive worries about weak iphone sales. all i can tell you is you just have to wait and see. apple's as in
vice president andrew johnson's drunken inaugural address. this is about an hour.>> thank you very much. that is a hard act to follow. i will try my best. we are about to have an inauguration on monday. the first question that comes to people's minds often in inauguration as they are standing or sitting in the cold waiting on the ceremonies to begin is we have separation of powers in this country. how is it that the president of the united states is being sworn into office on the steps of the capitol t legislative branch of the government. how did this all come about? it's not in the constitution. if you read the constitution it's sparse. it tells you the date and time the president is to be sworn in and the exact words of the oath but it doesn't say anything else. but yet we have this long two centuries of tradition built up around presidential inaugurations. it comes down to which came first, the chicken or the egg. and the fact is in 1979 when this brand new government was getting started the first part of government to meet was the congress. it was supposed to meet on march 4 but co

congressman dan johnson. good to have you with me this saturday. >> thank you for having me. >> the republican plan is coupled with a no budget, no-pay provision aimed at forcing the senate to pass the budget before an april deadline. if no budget is passed, members of congress, including yourself, don't get paid. what do you think about that proposal? >> well, you know, we have an issue with republicans who can't even control the members in their own caucus thinking that they can control proceedings in the senate and also the president enforced those to do what they want to have done and so they are trying to postpone the day of reckoning basically, for two months and i don't think the scheme is going work. >> so you don't support any part of that proposal? >> well, i mean, if we have a clean debt ceiling bill that comes forward and it's only for three months, that's something that i certainly would consider, but to tie a rise in the debt ceiling to decreasing spending on programs that benefit the middle class, i think it's the republicans' ultimate objective and i certainly do not support th
